HMS Community Project: Food Collection

HMS Community Project
The Physical Education and Health students are participating in a community project for the next two weeks. We are hoping to prepare and pack 1,200 sack lunches for Miss Carly’s.  Miss Carly’s prepares 600+ hot meals and 1,200 sack lunches weekly for homeless people in Rockford and surrounding areas.  We are trying to help our students understand the importance of helping others and giving back to the community.  We are asking for donations this week of the following items:
  • Pudding cups
  • Applesauce cups
  • Fruit cups
  • Plastic spoons
  • Snack-size chip bags
  • Soft cookies 
  • Nutri grain bars
  • Granola bars
  • Cracker packs
  • nuts/peanuts
  • Juice box/ Capri sun
  • Paper lunch bags
We will collect the donations this week and prepare the sack lunches next week. Please consider sending in any of the above non-perishables with your student, so that we can make the 1,200 lunches together. We are excited to make this a wonderful success together.
Thank you for your help.
